Not a touristy place. There is a large area where simple village buildings from throughout India are placed. You can wander through them. Some of the inside rooms were under construction, so there was not a lot to see there, though there was a nice textile display upstairs when we visited and an impressive two-story wooden chariot in a courtyard....

I should be present on the must - visit places. The place is simple yet elegant. The museum has stalls from all across the country displaying their specialties. The museum also has interesting paintings from the old legends. Apart from the Museum, Cafe Lota in the premises is an add - on advantage of visiting this place.

The Craft Museum is full of absorbingly beautiful objects, demonstrating tradition, skills and history. It's also got a terrific cafe, serving imaginative and good food; stalls where traditional goods are still made, and can be bought; and a good shop. Truly worth the tuk-tuk/taxi ride and the time.

The display of handmade objects, scenes and skills are simply awe inspiring and shows that India has so much to show as excellence by simple... More

Go to the crafts museum to find a diferent environment. Not busy, not expensive. You can see the countriside Indias in one place. The store is really mice and the kraftworkers at the courtyard of the museum are very kind. The restautant was lively, and I wish I have had lunch there. Dont miss.

The Craft Museum – Pragati Maidan, New Delhi I visited this rather quaint museum on 19th March 2015 with 2 friends. The museum is free. There are some interesting exhibits and it’s nicely laid out but to make it a worthwhile outing I suggest you combine it with a walk in Purana Quila first which is on the other sied... More
